At a rural Texas animal shelter, three dogs that had been there for the state required 72 hours were slated to die on Tuesday. A Boxer who appeared too thin, a German shepherd mix and a puppy waited in the parking lot on the animal control truck. Their euthanasia orders also waited on the passenger side of the truck.

So why were they ordered to be euthanized? According to Rescue Dogs Rock NYC who hurried to their rescue, the dogs only suffered from mange and skin infections.

“A vet tech at the Vet where they were brought to in for euthanasia called us in a panic, asking if we could help them,” co-founder of the rescue organization, Stacey Silverstein wrote on the group’s Facebook page. “… Because they had been at the shelter for 72 hours and they both have Mange and skin infections?

How could we sit by and do nothing knowing they are being killed for no reason?”

The dogs are safe, and will need a complete medical workup, care, boarding, transport and spay and neuter procedures. As of now, there is no further information about the dogs.
